Micro-target the right programs for every village

  • Government officials could compare 80 demographic, economic, health, and infrastructure data for each block.

  • Mapping made it easy to find hidden patterns, trends and insights that can be leveraged for better development plans.

  • Village development plans — with the priority and cost of each intervention — helped decision makers plan budgets effectively.

  • All the data — healthcare, education, infrastructure, and more — that officials needed was available through interactive charts.

Unify all government data in a single place

  • Select indicators make it easy to understand the performance of each scheme and find achievements or issues.

  • Geographic drill-downs show how each area ranks or compare regions across different indicators.

  • With a variety of color-coded maps and charts, understanding the reasons behind a scheme's success or failure is a breeze.

If we plan and implement a scheme based on mere guesswork and estimates, then certain gaps will show in our decision-making. With the use of numbers, data and technology, we can make important decisions in a matter of minutes. Data is going to become a primary medium for governance in India.

Make sure everyone accesses their government benefits

By matching eligibility data for each scheme with each person's data, we determined when someone was not using schemes for which they were eligible. Local administrators used this dashboard to make sure every person received all of their scheme benefits.

Track every department's plans & progress

  • View Department Action Plans for each ministry, or multiple plans grouped by theme.

  • Each Department's Action Plans can be viewed in a single page, to assess progress at a glance.

  • Department officials can view their joint progress toward quantitative targets.

  • As Department Action Plans change, officials can add new metrics or action points to all levels of a dashboard.

I don't need to hold review meetings. I know on a real-time basis which people are doing well, and I can connect to them on a one-to-one basis immediately using technology. Earlier we used to work without these tools, and now virtually I can run my office with my mobile phone and my iPad.
